If you have been tuning in every Thursday for The Chronolog, then you know Kevin Curtin and Chase Hoffberger of the Austin Chronicle have shared their Austin music insider info to make sure you don’t miss a beat in the Live Music Capital of the World. Now it’s time to vote for the best in Austin! Ballots for the Austin Music Awards close tomorrow, February 7th.
During SXSW, the 32nd annual Austin Music Awards will shine a light on the local artists who have shown exemplary musical talent in an array of areas. Past recipients and performers include Ben Kweller, Alejandro Escovedo, Gary Clark Jr., and Bruce Springsteen. If you are interested in attending the award ceremony, you can purchase tickets closer to the event or invest in a SXSW badge.
Here are some local Austin bands looking to make a splash at SXSW 2014:
The Wheeler Brothers, an Austin quartet who recently featured in Paste Magazine, performed at Newport Folk Festival last fall and Lollapalooza over the summer. They have won 7 Austin Music Awards and their hometown shows always sell out.
